A must-watch for Street Fighter fans, this Gouken vs. Akuma video pits Ryu’s trainer against our favorite red-haired baddie; it’s animated in a gorgeously fluid and artistic sketch style.

We can’t get enough of these Prototype gameplay clips; the genetically-modified parkour-wielding anti-hero game (due out this summer) looks as sweet as ever, courtesy G4TV.

Gran Turismo Spec III

Gran Turismo Spec III

While we still wish GT 5 Prologue was released in a finished form, we’re still salivating over this video from their Spec III release, which added the Ferrari California and Lotus Evora.

Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.

Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.

You’ll need to read up on Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. to figure out why Americans are taking out an M1 Abrams, but suffice to say this teaser has our geopolitical panties in a bunch.

DIY: BaR2D2

DIY: BaR2D2

Sure, robots could save lives, but truth be told we’ll probably make them serve beer: Jamie Price’s BaR2D2 is an RC mobile bar with an elevator and six-bottle shot dispenser.

3D Supernova Flythrough

3D Supernova Flythrough

There’s nothing like flying through a supernova remnant to give you a bad hair day, but this 3D tour by MIT astrophysicist Tracy Delaney lets you do it safely; it’s visualized using real data.

Gameplay: Dissidia

Gameplay: Dissidia

If you liked the Dissidia trailer but wanted some more meat, the aerial battle gameplay video above should tide you over: dizzying midair combos with Squall vs. Cloud = epic win.

Gameplay: LOTR Conquest

Gameplay: LOTR Conquest

More Lord of the Rings: Conquest goodness for all you Gondor wannabees: while the graphics may not be jaw-dropping there’s nothing quite like watching Gandalf rush a Balrog head-on.

Trailer: Push

Trailer: Push

With Djimon Hounsou and Fantastic Four’s Chris Evans, Push is like the cinematic version of Heroes; it focuses on government-hired psychics divided into 10 types of powers.

Left 4 Dead x Randy Savage

Left 4 Dead x Randy Savage

Even if you don’t know Randy Savage by name, you’ll no doubt recognize his “Slip into a Slim Jim!” tv spots, used to hilarious effect in the Macho Madness mod for Left 4 Dead.

Trash-Powered Honda

Trash-Powered Honda

Ever since Back to the Future II we’ve been praying for a Mr. Fusion reactor; San Francisco-based Jim Mason shows how he built a trash-powered “gasifier” to run his Honda Accord.

Trailer: Zeno Clash

Trailer: Zeno Clash

Filled with surreal landscapes and even more surreal creatures, Zeno Clash is like the spawn of Beetlejuice and Spore; frankly, bashing our way out of a nightmare sounds pretty fun.

Video: MacBook Wheel

Video: MacBook Wheel

The Onion is at it again with this Apple spoof of the MacBook Wheel; it’s similar to The MacTini but better produced. Best line: “I’ll buy just about anything if it’s shiny and made by Apple.”

Stephen Chow’s CJ7

Stephen Chow’s CJ7

It may be kid-oriented, but CJ7 is a must-see for fans of Hong Kong-style slapstick comedy; it’s coming to the US 3/14/08 and is directed by Stephen Chow of Kung Fu Hustle fame.

Wingsuit BASE Jumping

Wingsuit BASE Jumping

Short of being Fusionman, the wingsuit BASE jumpers in the video above are the closest that man will ever get to flying; it’s pretty sick stuff, especially when they buzz the camera.

White Knight Chronicles

White Knight Chronicles

Coming to North America sometime in 2009, White Knight Chronicles is a third-person, full-length 100 hour RPG by Level-5; the trailer above is flat-out, jaw-dropping awesome.

Free: Stackopolis

Free: Stackopolis

An oldie but a goodie, Stackopolis lets you build pixel cities using blocks to a Cowboy Bepop-ish soundtrack. Seems easy, until you run out the clock and get your ass handed to you.

Video: Slow-Mo Punches

Video: Slow-Mo Punches

We don’t think we’re sadistic, but there’s just something oh-so-enjoyable (and poetic) about watching the unwitting victims above get punched in the slow motion. Thanks, Maz!

Free: The Last Stand

Free: The Last Stand

Yes, it’s yet another zombie game, but The Last Stand had us hooked for a solid hour trying to survive twenty successive waves of the undead; hint: invest in a good weapon early.

AdvanTech Showreel ’08

AdvanTech Showreel ’08

Specializing in car-oriented videos, AdvanTech Studios’ Showreel ’08 is pure sex for auto aficionados; filled with slo-mo drifts and vignetting, you may have seen some of this in Top Gear.

Trailer: Dead Rising

Trailer: Dead Rising

Nothing will ever top the Heidi Kum Guitar Hero commercial, but this trailer for Dead Rising: Chop Til You Drop is pretty freakin cool, in a zombie mobbed, chainsaw flying way.

Beware of the Doghouse

Beware of the Doghouse

Although it’s a viral ad for JC Penney, Beware of the Doghouse describes the predicament of guys so well that we can’t help but nod our heads (and wag our tails) in agreement.

Trailer: Demon’s Souls

Trailer: Demon’s Souls

We could deal without the continuous operatic wail in the background, but this trailer for Japanese action RPG Demon’s Souls is an absolute eyeful for medieval fantasy fans.
